Brexit Blindness

Brexit should be a great opportunity, but it does seem as if the politicians in Westminster have been more interested in claiming their expenses and molesting one another than in preparing for Britain’s exit from the EU. Really, the initial steps should be quite straightforward: rather than the mess that is the Great Repeal Bill, … Continue reading

Not the Crime they Claimed

After the EU referendum vote, there was a surge of accusations that Leave voters were racists. Strangely, at the time, I saw virtually nothing Leave-related that could be called racist, while Remainers were warning of the ‘brown tide’ that would overwhelm Britain if we left the EU and abusing anyone who supported the Leave campaign. … Continue reading

Spanish Practices

Spain has demonstrated the stupidity and nastiness that characterises the European ruling elite by brutally cracking down on Catalan separatists in scenes reminiscent of third-world dictatorships. Yes, the Catalan independence isn’t constitutional, but that is no reason for violence. The Spanish government could just have ignored the result, just as they might any opinion poll, … Continue reading


I wasn’t surprised that the AfD did well in the German elections, nor was I that surprised to see ‘anti-fascists’ protesting at their success. Nor can I say I was impressed. Besides the fact that complaining that the democratic process produced the ‘wrong’ result being dangerously close to fascism, once again, the ‘anti-fascists’ demonstrated that … Continue reading

Neither Open Nor Closed

With the recent attack on the Christmas Market in Berlin, there has been, not unreasonably, a lot of discussion about Angela Merkel’s open door policy to immigrants. As ever seems to be the case, irrationality rules as many people surge to the extreme of demanding a complete closure of the borders, while out-of-touch ‘liberals’ claim … Continue reading

Brexit and Money

If there is one common denominator linking the majority of those opposed to Britain leaving the EU, it is money: They have it, they want more of it, and they’ll do anything to keep it regardless of the consequences. There may be a few genuinely-principled supporters of the EU who believe it is a good … Continue reading


The EU referendum was hardly a pinnacle of informed debate, but, while there are those Leavers who were shaky about the issues, it seems to be a requirement that to be one of the Remain brigade who still cannot accept they lost, a Remainer must be stupid. This might, of course, explain their stubborn detachment … Continue reading


If you’ve been following my recent posts, you won’t be surprised to learn that I’m delighted that Britain has, narrowly, voted for Brexit. The vote kept me up all night, watching at first with trepidation, then with elation as the Leave total climbed ahead of Remain. The first step towards the reformation of Britain has … Continue reading

Judgement Day

Well, today is the day that Britain goes to the polls and decides whether it wants to remain in the EU or leave, and if the flooding is anything to go by, it seems we’ve gone with Brexit and the apocalypse predicted by David Cameron is already upon us! Of course, the result remains far … Continue reading

Can The EU Work?

On one of the televised debates about the EU, a youth stated, in reference to the EU, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Unfortunately, as a substantial number of people either can’t comprehend or are in denial of, the EU is severely broken. Now, as anyone who has been following this blog will know, … Continue reading
